In-Depth Kia passenger car sales graphic AID NewsletterEyes focused on upcoming Kia

Korea’s near identical twins, Hyundai and its sister Kia brand, have recorded some of the fastest growth of any newcomer since they it opened for business in Europe. Hyundai, which was first to open its stall in the region in the late 1970s, was joined a decade later by Kia. Since then, almost acting like a double act, both Korean brands appeared to shadow each other, with both moving almost rely

Finally, after a long drawn-out overture, from the middle of next month Germany’s prospective electric car buyers will at least be tempted by a jointly funded industry/government €4,000 subsidy – buyers of qualifying plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) will benefit from a slightly slimmer €3,000 subsidy

West European car sales Q1 Western Europe graphMarch electric car sales in Western Europe reach highest total for any month on record  

Electric car sales in Western Europe, excluding plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) last month reached the highest-ever level for any month on record, but the rate of growth slowed sharply to the lowest level for sixteen months. AID’s exclusively compiled sales numbers show that West Europe’s electric car sales in March rose 12.2 per cent to a highest-ever 11,935 units, boosted once more by a more than doubling in registrations in France’s heavily subsidised electric car market

Jaguar in-depth car sales historical report Western Europe AID NewsletterJaguar, at long last, has regained its long-absent sharper bite  

Since time immemorial, Jaguar, just like its Land Rover brother, was perceived the world over as a manufacturer of desirable premium sector cars. In consequence, Jaguar’s cars were competing for the same upmarket buyers as Germany’s Mercedes and BMW, which in turn were joined somewhat later by Volkswagen’s upmarket Audi brand

Peter Schmidt Editor In Chief AID NewsletterGolden boys, silk purse out of a sow's ear?

"Not so long ago, autoindustry whispers rather than predictions, forewarning of the slow death of Fiat, joined more recently by trouble-struck Peugeot Citroën, have proved overly pessimistic. Likewise, albeit after first biting the bullet and declaring itself bankrupt, previously woe-struck Chrysler also bounced back from the brink.
